Onion Tart

I made this up the other night to serve as a side with steak. Everytime I make it, it is a bit different depending on what is available in the house. Outside of the shell, onions and cheese, you can substitute or exclude most of the other ingredients to suit your taste. These are the ones I used for this one.

1 Tortilla Shell
3-4 onions
minced fresh garlic
tsp brown sugar
beer
thyme
allspice
bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste
Shredded Mozzerella
Grated Parmesan
Peppercorn Asagio
Fresh Parsley

Fry onions and garlic in olive on med heat for a few minutes, Add sugar and continue to fry on med-low heat until onions become dark(about 20 minutes) Add a couple of glugs of beer, they thyme and allspice, and reduce until beer has evaporated. Make sure to clean up the brown bit bottom of the pan with a spatula. Allow onions to cool for 15 minutes.

Place shell on pan and spread onions evenly over it. Cover with cheese blend and parsley. Bake at 425 in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes until top is brown and bottom is crispy. Enjoy.

That looks wonderful - I wish onions liked me enough that I could make it.
:(

I used flour tortillas because that is what I had. Corn Tortillas will probably work. I've also used Pita, phylo. Whatever can crisp up and cook through in a short amount of time.

When I first made them I used pastry crust but soon moved on to different bottoms out of convenience. So, yeah, I guess it is a Tortilla pizza.

With so many DCers making pizza at home I was planning to either buy pizza dough or make it. I just never thought how perfect a flour tortilla would be. I love that I won't have to bake as I always keep some on hand. Now, I can concentrate on fillings.
